It is with great sadness to share that on December 29, 2020, we said goodbye to our mother, grandmother and devoted friend, DORIS MAYS GRIFFIN.
Doris was born on Christmas Day, December 25, 1942, in Savannah, Georgia, and sadly, on December 29, 2020, passed away too soon, leaving a huge hole in the hearts of so many fortunate enough to have known her.
Doris is survived and will be missed deeply by her three children, Randall Griffin, Karrie Griffin Henry, and James Griffin, and her grandchildren. Through the years, Doris also took great pleasure in “raising” many of Karrie’s, Randall ’s and James’ childhood friends at her beautiful property and home on Highway 17. She taught them many life lessons, and shared with them the same unconditional love, as if they were her own. Her personality was larger than life itself, and memories of her smile, laugh and stories will live on in the hearts of so many, including her friends from the Wilmington Island Post Office, where she served devotedly for many years. DORIS LOVED HARD, LIVED WELL AND NEVER MET A STRANGER !!
Visitation will be Monday January 4th at 10am at Families First Funeral Care on Dean Forest Road. Service to follow at 11 . There will be a graveside burial after the service at Hillcrest Abbey West on Dean Forest Road.
